Probius Suggestions (art)

Hero and Skin Suggestions

As a spec main, I love Probius but I have a couple suggestions for her(I decided it's a her)

First: please add a charge for the Photon Cannon. One short-lived Photon Cannon hardly feels like an ability, maybe have the level 7 cooldown reduction talent also add a charge for the ability.

Second: As a Starcraft fan this one is more important to me. please update the art so that the pylon and photon cannon match the tint of Probius because it really looks wrong to see a Tal'darim Probe warp in a Khalai Pylon. It's not too hard, look, I do it for you:

That would be great!

I like the little Probe as well.

But i am afraid her "W" has a to short range,
and the Canon is just not good.

The Canon does not that much dmg, it does not prior Heros, so the " Conon rush" talent hardy works.

Some tweaking and she is not just cool, she would get awesome!

(but she dont needs to ge OP)
Blizzard, I've done video game modding as a hobby for years, as you can see I was able to extract the pylon from HotS and create rudimentary textures for it's second two tints, so if creating textures for the 9 tints of the current 3 skins for the Pylon and Photon Cannon is a question of resources. Contact me, I 'll do it for free because it means that much to me.
I haven't gone into PTR, so I won't comment on ability changes, but the thing about changing the looks of summoned stuff just makes sense.

Also, that Purifier Pylon looks awesome :)
to further bolster my point. and perhaps enthuse some support, I cleaned the texture up a bit and modified the m3 directly so that it was using proper materials, here's the Tal'darim pylon as it would look in-gamehttp://i.imgur.com/tqSekfS.pngLeft to right: Birth, Stand, Death, Overcharge
So cool!
i upvoted you, maybe so it gets the attention its deservs.

I can concur with this a great deal
Probius's abilities are at least 70% of his appearance, they definitely need to match the tint he's using.
I wish they had mad Probius as a sort of sc2 worker. Able to switch skins between all 3 races. With power that had equivalents in all 3 races.

But I'll settle for the next skin to be Zerg ;-)

Did you just assume its gender?

Oh and by the way, its a he... You're welcome to go look it up.
I'll probably keep encouraging this until we get a note from Blizzard on the subject. in the mean time I made more art:
I cleaned up my Variation 1(purifier) pylon

Terran Pylon variations:

[starcraft's team colors seem to be more washed out than HotS,or I need to adjust the textures]

I've been playing Probius a lot now. and I can say this is definitely true you see her Pylons and photon cannon almost as much as the little probe herself. this would also help distinguish enemy pylons if they have a different tint.
also: fixed Terran pylons:

not enough thumbs up so here have mine
Thanks for bringing this to light. I've only tested Probius in his first tint so I didn't know about that.

I believe this is a major issue and needs to be addressed asap (preferably before release), especially in the case of Terran Probius, which is a paid skin.
Upvoted!

Also - they look really cool! I would love to have these color tints. This would be a great additional reason to buy Probius!
Upvoted.

I bought the Terran skin on the PTR and was excited to play the adorable yellow and black construction variant only to discover he uses the same blue pylons and cannons across all tints! Very sad, was thinking about requesting a refund simply because it spoils him so much for me.
Upvoted!
I've already made a post about that and was about to make a photoshop test to illustrate it, glade someone did it before me !D

It's REALLY jarring to not have your buildings changing color with your own tints.
I like this. I really wish the Dev team would too :P
This post needs all the thumbs.
